Welcome to the Husky Run & Ruck - the must-attend event of 2023! Get ready for an unforgettable experience that combines fitness, community, and a heartfelt salute to our veterans. Whether you're an avid runner, a walker, or just looking to enjoy a leisurely stroll, we have something for everyone. Our event offers a 10K run, a 5K run/walk, and an untimed 1-mile course, all starting and finishing right in the heart of UConn Storrs campus. Mark your calendars, because this incredible event will be taking place on Veterans Day weekend. It's a wonderful opportunity for us to come together as a community and honor those who have served our country. As an added bonus, the event will also be benefiting UConn Veterans Affairs and Military Programs. The courses we have prepared will take you on a journey through the stunning UConn campus and the picturesque Mansfield-Storrs area. 10K runners will have the chance to conquer the infamous Bone Mill Road, running in honor of the brave Navy SEAL and UConn track and field athlete, Kyle Milliken, who made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom. We welcome both runners and walkers in our 5K event, which provides a delightful taste of the local area. For those seeking a more leisurely pace, our fitness walk offers an untimed mile through the heart of campus. No matter which course you choose, all of them will pass by the Ultimate Sacrifice Memorial on the Great Lawn, a powerful reminder of the sacrifices made by our heroes. But that's not all - as a participant, you will earn a stylish and high-quality long-sleeve technical shirt, perfect for showcasing your achievement. And after crossing the finish line, you can join us for some well-deserved post-race festivities, taking place right outside the UConn Student Recreation Center. So, what are you waiting for? Lace up your sneakers, grab your friends and family, and join us for an incredible day of fitness, camaraderie, and heartfelt gratitude. Let's come together and show our support for our veterans while having an amazing time. Sign up now and be a part of the Husky Run & Ruck. See you at the starting line!
